Research has shown that these methods are more effective than performing the traditional sleeper stretch for gaining internal rotation range of motion‼️⚠️
👀This area can get tight as the result of poor posture, specific sports, or poor training.
🎥The first technique is with a foam roller and I'm able to find areas of tightness/restrictions and then stop, take a deep breathe and the move my arm into internal/external rotation to pin and stretch the muscles I'm working.
🎥 In the 2nd clip I'm using a lacrosse ball to further pinpoint those restrictions, breathe and then move through those ranges of motion. 🎥The third clip is a lat stretch, but I am using my other hand to provide an inferior glide to the head of humerus to prevent any compensations from occurring
